“I cannot wait to play under Erik ten Hag” – David de Gea speaks out after Crystal Palace

"I cannot wait to play under Erik ten Hag" - David de Gea speaks out after Crystal Palace

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea has admitted that he cannot wait to start playing under Erik ten Hag after what he described as a horrible season for The Red Devils.

Man Untied ended their season with a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park, in what was supposed to be a must-not-lose game.

However, Manchester United were still able to make the Europa League cut, despite the defeat, after West Ham United lost their 1-0 lead as it ended 3-1 in favour of Brighton and Hove Albion.

Ralf Rangnick’s time as United’s interim manager ends tonight at Selhurst Park and Erik ten Hag will take over as United’s next manager.

And De Gea, who is keen on forgetting this season totally, is already relishing the chances of working with the former Ajax tactician at Old Trafford and is hoping the Dutchman takes United higher up the table.

David de Gea told BBC: “I want to forget this season and be 100% ready for the next season and be positive. It has been horrible, a very bad season in all ways, it has been very tough. It is time to rest and prepare your minds for next season

“Ones who want to stay, stay at the club. Ones that don’t want to stay go out. You don’t have to stay here.

“The new manager and staff are already looking for new players. Hopefully they bring good ones with good character.

“I cannot wait [to play under Erik ten Hag]. I am excited for the next season, new manager, new players. Hopefully we will improve put Manchester United in a better position. We need to trust in the future.”
